So, the Failclowns just cut Abraham, Robinson, and Turner. Freeing up a bunch of cap space.

Why can't the Saints do this and just cut ties with their overpaid non-performing vets? How much cap space would cutting Harper/Smith/Vilma produce, exactly?


The Saints treat their employees right. They may slightly overpay every now and then, but it makes the team a more attractive destination for FAs.

I would argue the biggest deciding factors for whether a team is attractive to FAs or not are; A) How much $$ are they going to pay? and B) Winning.

I just see other teams cutting ties and wonder why the Saints don't. I mean, let's not pretend Smith and Vilma have been anywhere near productive. I guess I should just be happy that they'll been given a take it or leave contract, huh?

Loomis if offering them a paycut and giving then an opportunity to remain a Saint. Cutting your captains without showing them to take a paycut is in poor taste. have no problem with the Saints keeping Vilma and Smith if it is for what their worth.

Don't know if it means anything, but a lot of tweets about a New deal by Junior Galette. He just tweeted this one:

He's been tweeting a lot more than usual, and a good bit of them are about a new deal. Someone tweeted at him saying something like 2 mil a year and he kinda laughed at that "offer"

Yeah I saw a tweet about 3% of the cap and he liked it. Would be $3.69 per year, don't know if he's worth that much money...

He produces when he plays, but he hasn't been a starter and he's always injured

Pay Junior 3M a year if you have too, he's the type of player we've let walk in the past and watched them turn into good players on other teams.

This is true. No way we let him walk after switching to a 3-4, IMO.

Especially since I think the 4 players that spurred the switch to the 3-4 were hicks, jordan, tez, and galette

I'm kinda glad we don't have a shot a Spencer. Thought we would have spent money we didn't hav eto get him.

I like Connor Barwin, but with the numbers I've heard with Gallette 3-4 million sounds like a starter and I will be shocked if WIlson isn't starting at outsidebacker.

Just don't think we will go after an outsidebacker.

We will draft one in round 3 or 4. Sign a CB via FA (this class is great, Smith, Levis, Williams, many more!), draft best defensive player in the first and depth at OLB and ILB in rounds 3 and 4
